    Grasshopper

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This four-inch long colourful grasshopper took an instant liking to me and decided to climb up my trouser leg! All the photographers were very pleased, as his colouring showed much better against the dark background of my trousers, than the sandy coloured ground!

    Cock of the rock

    by grets Written Nov 2, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The colourful Cock-of-the Rock is one of the world's most spectacular birds, about the size of a pigeon, with fantastic plumage in bright orange. The skins and feathers are highly valued for decoration, but to capture one of these rare birds, carries a fine and/or imprisonment.

    The Cock-of-the-Rock's diet consists mainly of fruit, and they build their nests on rock faces of cliffs, large boulders, caves or steep gorges.

    It is a solitary and wary bird, feeding before sunrise and after sunset and hiding through the day in sombre ravines. We felt very privileged to be able to spot this bird - all be it deep in the dark and dense foliage, and some distance away. I therefore aplogise for the quality of the photograph.

    A little golden frog

    Very, very small and hiding in the watery depths of a bromeliad, this frog is absolutely gorgeous, but very hard to spot!

    So close you can feel the spray

    30,000 gallons of water per second flow over these falls at their peak. When we visited, the falls were about a third full, so I can imagine how incredibly spectacular they are in full flow!

    The path

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The walk from the air strip down to the falls, takes your through an area of fairly dense rainforest, over a couple of brooks and under some large boulders. It really is a super walk, very natural.
